Blue Cheese Burgers & Grilled Corn on the Cob: Easy Summer Meals

Summer means different things to different people. For some, it’s time to head to sandy beaches, for others, the mountains call for epic hikes. Gardeners are either trying to survive drought or torrential rain, or in our case here in Colorado, the threat of hail. If summer has a sound it would be a mix of […]

Summer Gatherings and Skirt Steak Tacos

Glancing into the backyard all that remained from our barbecue was a full heart and a deck scattered with tables and chairs like a restaurant patio. Few leftovers marked the occasion of friends gathered around tables under a stormy sky. Yes, rain. Ugh. I’m not even sure how many times we hauled cushions back and forth. Finally, […]

Mushroom & Blue Cheese Ragout

Mushroom & Blue Cheese Ragout is one of those recipes that makes anything you serve with it, better. You can already tell by the photos, it’s not the tomato or meat based ragu we all love on pasta. Although when you taste this you might be tempted to pour it over pasta, or sandwiches, or […]

It has taken nearly a month to write this post for my friends and community affected by the Black Forest Fire.

  The curry adventure continues … Before we shift gears and start thinking about roasted turkeys and holiday baking next week, it seemed only fitting to follow-up curried fowl with a little curried cow.

Lil’ Italy Burger Recipe & Hiatus

It has been a while since I’ve had creative time in the kitchen; we’ve been in maintenance mode since the end of June. A string of easy, go-to meals became a real lifeline … sometimes dependable, get-it-on-the-table (boring) is what life demands. Yes, even food bloggers have seasons when inspiration is lacking and we rely […]

Roasted Green Chili Burgers: Cinco de Mayo & National Burger Month

May is National Burger Month and Cinco de Mayo is as good a reason as any to partake in south of the border flavors this weekend.  Roasted Green Chili Burgers seemed like the ideal recipe to celebrate both and light the grill. Smoky chilies and cheese mixed right in the burger, topped with salsa mayonnaise […]

Pioneer Woman’s Sloppy Joes and Caramelized Onion Sprouted Wheat Buns Recipe

Would you believe that in 28 years of cooking and loving food, last week was the first time I ever made Sloppy Joes? If I am going to make a sandwich out of ground beef, my husband would much prefer a hamburger, hence no Joes of any kind, sloppy or otherwise. Growing up in the […]

Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar: Modena Magic

Years ago I used balsamic vinegar for marinades and salad dressings, thinking I was a culinary genius (ah, youth). Although I still use what we call balsamic in the U.S. for these same applications, our trip to Italy opened my eyes to true balsamic vinegar. The sweet, tangy, complex, thick syrup garnishing our cheese plate […]

Reuben Sandwiches for St. Patrick’s Day

Flogging Molly set the mood, while fresh baked rye buns were prepped and ready to hold all we had assembled for our Reuben Sandwiches. As I mentioned in the previous post Sprouted Rye Sandwich Buns, from the time the rye flour was ordered I’d been scheming to build a Reuben sandwich in honor of St. […]
